Hemmi, Kirsti; Ryve, Andreas – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2015
This article explores effective mathematics teaching as constructed in Finnish and Swedish teacher educators' discourses. Based on interview data from teacher educators as well as data from feedback discussions between teacher educators and prospective teachers in Sweden and Finland, the analysis shows that several aspects of the recent…

Jong, Cindy; Hodges, Thomas E. – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2015
This article reports on the development of attitudes toward mathematics among pre-service elementary teachers (n = 146) in relation to their experiences as K-12 learners of mathematics and experiences within a teacher education program. Using a combination of the Rasch Rating Scale Model and traditional parametric analyses, results indicate that…

Warshauer, Hiroko Kawaguchi – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2015
Prior studies suggest that struggling to make sense of mathematics is a necessary component of learning mathematics with understanding. Little research exists, however, on what the struggles look like for middle school students and how they can be productive. This exploratory case study, which used episodes as units of analysis, examined 186…

Andrews, Paul; Xenofontos, Constantinos – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2015
In this article, we analyse the problem-solving-related beliefs, competence and classroom practice of three Cypriot upper-primary teachers. Data derived from semi-structured interviews focused on teachers' beliefs about the nature of mathematical problems, problem-solving, and their competence as both problem-solvers and teachers of…

Peters, Susan A. – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2014
This retrospective phenomenological study investigates activities and actions identified by secondary statistics teachers who exhibit robust understandings of variation as deepening their understandings of statistical variation. Using phenomenological methods and a frame of Mezirow's transformation theory, analysis revealed learning factors…

Santagata, Rossella; Yeh, Cathery – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2014
Although emerging consensus exists that practice-based approaches to teacher preparation assist in closing the distance between university coursework and fieldwork experiences and in assuring that future teachers learn to implement innovative research-based instructional strategies, little empirical research has investigated teacher learning from…

Herbst, Patricio; Kosko, Karl W. – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2014
This study compared conversations among groups of teachers of high school geometry that had been elicited by a representation of instruction (either a video or an animation) and facilitated with an open-ended agenda. All artifacts used represented instruction scenarios that departed from what, according to prior work, had been hypothesized as…

Tyminski, Andrew M.; Zambak, V. Serbay; Drake, Corey; Land, Tonia J. – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2014
This paper examines a series of instructional activities that provide prospective elementary teachers with an opportunity to engage in one of the more difficult practices to learn within mathematics teaching--organizing a mathematical discussion. Within a mathematics methods course, representations and decomposition of practice built from the Five…

van den Kieboom, Leigh A.; Magiera, Marta T.; Moyer, John C. – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2014
In this study, we explored the relationship between prospective teachers' algebraic thinking and the questions they posed during one-on-one diagnostic interviews that focused on investigating the algebraic thinking of middle school students. To do so, we evaluated prospective teachers' algebraic thinking proficiency across 125…

Thomas, Mike; Yoon, Caroline – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2014
This paper describes part of an international project considering graphical construction of antiderivative functions in the secondary mathematics classroom. We use Schoenfeld's resources, orientations, and goals (ROGs) framework to analyse the decisions made by a teacher, Adam, during a lesson on graphical antiderivatives. We present details…

Goldsmith, Lynn T.; Doerr, Helen M.; Lewis, Catherine C. – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2014
How do practicing mathematics teachers continue to develop the knowledge and habits of mind that enable them to teach well and to improve their teaching over time? The question of how (and what) teachers learn lies at the crux of any effort to provide high-quality mathematics teaching for all students. This article reviews 106 articles written…

Wagner, David; Herbel-Eisenmann, Beth – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2014
Issues of authority abound in education and schooling but have not been interrogated sufficiently. We describe a tool that we have developed to initiate dialogue with teachers about authority in their classrooms--using a diagram to represent authority in their classrooms. Our analysis of the diagrams mathematics teachers created and discussed in…

Mitchell, Rebecca; Charalambous, Charalambos Y.; Hill, Heather C. – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2014
Representations are often used in instruction to highlight key mathematical ideas and support student learning. Despite their centrality in scaffolding teaching and learning, most of our understanding about the tasks involved with using representations in instruction and the knowledge requirements imposed on teachers when using these aids is…

Tsamir, Pessia; Tirosh, Dina; Levenson, Esther; Tabach, Michal; Barkai, Ruthi – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2014
This article describes a study that investigates preschool teachers' knowledge of their young students' number conceptions and the teachers' related self-efficacy beliefs. It also presents and illustrates elements of a professional development program designed explicitly to promote this knowledge among preschool teachers. Results…

Bleiler, Sarah K.; Thompson, Denisse R.; Krajcevski, Milé – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2014
Mathematics teachers play a unique role as experts who provide opportunities for students to engage in the practices of the mathematics community. Proof is a tool essential to the practice of mathematics, and therefore, if teachers are to provide adequate opportunities for students to engage with this tool, they must be able to validate student…
